One Devonshire Gardens – Romantic Scottish Wedding Venue

Romantic Scottish Wedding Venue

Choose the Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow as your wedding venue and you know you are in good company.  Bob Dylan has stayed there.  So have Madonna and Kylie Minogue.  In fact, the hotel boasts all sorts of celebrity heavyweights on its guest list since 1986 when it became part of the award winning Hotel du Vin group.

If you choose One Devonshire Gardens as your wedding venue then the bridal couple can stay in one of the adjoining town houses (including conservatory and luxury wet room) for their own touch of celebrity treatment.

The hotel has a number of private rooms to choose from.  The largest is the Glenlivet which interestingly seats up to 30 guests on one large Oval table (or 50 on round tables).  For the small to medium size wedding the single table sounds like an interesting idea and removes the dilemma of deciding who should sit on which table.  Of course it does’nt help with who should sit next to who.  There is a smaller room, the Ardberg which seats 10-16 wedding guests and would be ideal for a small intimate wedding.  You can use both rooms at the same time to seat up to 70 guests on round tables (and 100 guests for an evening buffet) but I have never been a fan of splitting the wedding party over two rooms unless of course you have a big family rift to contend with.

The hotel has a lovely terrace for a champagne reception and a lovely spot for the all important photos whilst guest relax in the sumptuous Macallan lounge area with its big comfy sofas and a large roaring open fire in the winter season.

As with many venues, the hotel has partnered with some local wedding suppliers and recommends Mood Flowers for the floral decorations and either Norma Ann or Julie Lamont for the photography.  Of course, I would always advise you shop around for related services but I would always recommend you check out the recommended services as they can have a big advantage.  A photographer, for example, who has shot many weddings at One Devonshire Gardens will be familiar with lighting conditions and the best spots to get those picture perfect wedding images.

One big attraction of this place for the bridal couple looking for a romantic Scottish wedding venue is that it is only 20 minutes from Glasgow Airport.  Most local airports in England offer budget flights to Glasgow and the hotel has 49 bedroom suites for your guests to stay in so you can wrap up luxury, convenience and romance in one package.  Perhaps a short weekend break together to check out the facilities is in order.
